Casual Conversation January 17, 2023: Harari's Sapiens

Time to sharpen our reading skills and get ready to discuss Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari.   Classmates David Abbott and Tex Talmadge will be our docents on this tour through history, but as David writes, see below, the goal is to get your views in reacting to the book and at looking at the future of our species.
 
The date is January 17, 2023 and the time is 4:30 pm Eastern.   You have plenty of time to obtain the book and read it.

Homecoming 2024

SAVE. THE. DATE.

Class of 1969 Homecoming 2024 will be October 4-5 to enjoy a football game with Penn, great foliage, and decent weather. (Rather than gathering during the College's official Homecoming the weekend of November 1-2, 2024.)

More information to come later.

Homecoming 2023

At this time, our next in-person gathering is planned for October of 2023: Homecoming 2023 will be the weekend of October 6 & 7.

Plans are still being finalized but will likely include a climb up Mt. Moosilauke, an in-person Casual Conversation, a class meeting, tailgating, football against Yale, and plenty of free time to socialize with classmates. We would love to have a great turnout. The more ‘69s, the better!

Planning for future Homecomings (2023 and beyond)

Questions have been raised about the best timing and structure for our Class Homecoming event. The College currently alternates between early and late October to coincide with home football games against Yale and Harvard. Late October weather in New England and higher prices during the official Homecoming weekend are disincentives for some in our Class.
